On Education and Learning Online

To the Editor:

In these difficult days, due to the coronavirus, some good things were done, such as remote learning for schools and universities. If we were in other times we would have gone crazy, we would not have been able to communicate with our loved ones, nor would children have been able to continue their lessons. Especially in education, the children continued to attend classes, hopefully if they all had computers. I wouldn't say that digital education would ever replace the teacher and the professor, but it certainly helped and will help even more in the future. Even for older adults who were isolated, it was an opportunity for a creative use of their time.
